EXHIBITION
The World is not a Foreign Land
Friday, 3 October 2014 - Sunday, 9 November 2014
Drill Hall Gallery, Kingsley Street, ANU
This exhibition takes the notions of collaboration, dialogue and influence as its departure point. It involves Indigenous Australian artists working within localised histories of widely separated areas of 'remote' Australia. Their work stakes a claim for renewal and change by making a feature of artistic relationships previously unrepresented, bridging 'untraditional' media and eclectic traditions.
PUBLIC LECTURE
Vision, ageing and driving
Friday, 31 October 2014 at 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Lecture Theatre Anthony Low Building 124, Eggleston Road, ANU
The safety of older drivers is a challenging and emotive issue. While the majority of older drivers are relatively safe, there are a small proportion of drivers who are unsafe, and the number of individuals in this group is likely to increase as our older population grows. One factor that can potentially contribute to reduced driving safety is visual impairment which becomes more revalent with increasing age. However, while it seems obvious that good vision is critical for safe driving, there is still much debate regarding which specific visual functions are important for safe driving, the level of visual impairment at which driving performance is affected and how various age-related eye diseases impact upon driving performance and safety.

Springbank Launch
Friday, 31 October 2014 at 5:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Ivy Cafe, Canberra House
Please support the launch of the Springbank archaeology project and a local field-school for ANU undergrads! Springbank Island (in Lake Burley Griffin) is the site of one of Canberra's earliest homesteads (from 1831). It was also a meeting and ceremony place for local Aboriginal community. Archaeology excavations planned for 2015, will assess European (and even earlier Aboriginal) activity. Local Aboriginal custodians and descendants of Springbank Homestead are joining us. This is open to anyone who want first hand archaeology experience. Help us piece together our collective, Canberra history!
